Watch A bitter sweet song that brings a tear to all of our eyes. Lennon called it his Beatle track off Double Fantasy and it clearly proves that had Lennon lived it was the start of his second coming (that never was).
Woman is a 1981 single by John Lennon from his 1980 album Double Fantasy. Written by Lennon: it is an ode to his wife Yoko Ono, which is introduced by Lennon whispering, For the other half of the sky ..., a paraphrase of a Chinese proverb, one used by Mao Zedong.
In an interview for Rolling Stone magazine on December 5, 1980, Lennon said that Woman was a grown-up version of the song Girl.
Woman was the second single released from the Double Fantasy album, and the first Lennon single issued after his death on December 8, 1980. The B-side of the single is Onos song Beautiful Boys. The single debuted at #3 in the UK, then moving to #2 and finally reaching #1, where it spent two weeks, knocking off the top spot his own re-released Imagine. In the US the single spent three weeks at #2. The single was also a commercial success in New Zealand where it spent 5 weeks at #1.
